Community Concern Erewash is running a Winter Survival Project which is free of charge for vulnerable Erewash residents*
Community Concern Erewash can provide a Winter Survival pack to the most vulnerable people in the borough which will have a range of practical supplies to help them keep warm when temperatures drop.
The pack will contain the following essential winter warmers:
Hot water bottle; Blanket; Hat; Gloves; Socks; Thermometer; Torch
Whilst we always recommend that people maintain a healthy temperature in their home, we know that for some this just isn’t possible because of worries about unaffordable fuel bills. For these people having a survival pack could ensure they stay warm and well.
The qualifying criteria to determine who should receive a pack are: anyone who is a vulnerable adult, elderly, frail, with a combination of physical, mental or social needs which makes them at high risk of hospital admission, falling, or preventable ill health during the cold period.
The scheme, funded by the Erewash Clinical Commissioning Group, is being run by Community Concern Erewash in an effort to reduce the number of excess seasonal hospital admissions this winter.
To request a pack please contact Kim tel. 0115 9444146 or email [email protected]
*packs are supplied to Erewash residents, are subject to the qualifying criteria and whilst stocks last.
